Lyrics
Pieces of you will align with pieces of me.
Pieces that you will define.

Pieces of you will collide with pieces of me.
Either way, we will be fine.

Haven't you thought this world was too much
You bury what you need.
Haven't you thought this world's not enough.

Memories feel like they weigh too much,
but they can plant the seed.
Memories make us who we become.

If you can't find the strength within yourself
to kneel down and pray
Then take my hand and hold still
until the end of the day.

Some thoughts, some dreams will have a bitter price.
They will fade away
Remember seasons will change.
You'll reach the end of the day.

I will just pretend,
'Til I reach the end.

Very 80's
And that ain't a bad thing at all. Quite an addictive/danceable beat and you sure know how to perfectly structure a song. So damned radio-ready. So brilliantly good. In awe.

Thanks moorlandt
I do love me some 80s so I agree, 80's ain't a bad thing at all! I find I've been leaning towards a synthpop that's influenced by the likes of Erasure, OMD, or When in Rome as well as the new stuff like VNV Nation.

New Year's Resolution
I am all over this song. You have the perfect voice for this tune and I was really very happy to hear you hit those awesome high notes after the 5 minute mark. You remind me of one of my all time favorite voices, but I'm not going to compare you because I don't think I've ever heard any of your songs before. I'm embarrassed to say because you've been here longer than me!

Great synth sounds and a totally pro mix on this killer tune.

Glad to see someone keep their resolution.

Thanks!

End of the Day
I'm enjoying your lyrics here - sort of a mechanistic way of expressing world-weariness. The synth tones chosen complement each other well, although at times they overwhelm the vocals. The vocals sound good, especially in that upper register. Altogether a great job.

Thanks dave_b
Glad you like! Thanks as well for pointing out the vocal to synth ratio being a bit too overwhelming. I'm always down for constructive criticism and upon listening, I see where you're coming from. I do have a tendency to "bury" the vox into a track, but have been working to give them more prominence. Perhaps, just a little more tweaking in the mix, eh?

PS
If I ever finish the movie scripts I have ideas for, this song would be perfect for my scifi one! [But that's only if I ever get them finished... Scifi film: end of the world in the distant scifi future; other idea: romantic comedy / musical based off of music by the plain white t's titled Songs For Delilah.] Can't wait to hear your next song!

I'll be looking forward to that!

PS There are some lyrics I wrote a while back and just found. With how much I love your current stuff, I'd love to see what you would do with them. I'll send them as soon as I can! ^_^

It's Clear to Me
We share a similar vision on music! You're the best songwriter I've encountered on here too. A very minor critique is your lyrics could use some more depth and eloquence, but I say this almost painfully because I enjoy your sonicscapes so much and appreciate your talent, which is obviously huge. You have good pop sense and your mixes are well thought out and and executed. Perhaps I'm biased because I love Synth Pop above all else and find your approach refreshing and cool.

packosmokes said 3369 days ago (February 1st, 2010)
Thanks again!
You're critique is accepted as well as I have been trying to push myself in a more eloquent, flowing manner in regards to my lyrics. This track, though lent itself to a repetition of sorts and then in chorus a more full sentence approach. I'd love to know what you think of Believe or Carpe Diem as those are where I've tried to improve lyrically.

I remember you!
It looks like you posted some songs in 09, but not when I was looking, I guess.

I like this. It has a bit of an 80s flavour, but the synths are pretty aggressive, not the glossy FM stuff. Great vocal arrangement, especially towards the end. Enjoyed.

I love your F+F stuff. Make some more. When I get back to DJing later this year, I'll throw some in the mix ; )

I'm terrible about keeping track of what's going on around here. Hence my comment is about 480 days late.
